Studio Calico Copper Mountain Is Here!

This is just a peek at some of the cool new products found in Studio Calico's January kits.  If you're a subscriber, kits are available for purchase now!  (The kits become available to non-subbers at midnight.)  There are lots of great digital products that have just been released as well.

I think you're really going to love the card kits this month!  If you haven't heard, the Copper Mountain kit comes with a stamp set & coordinating DIE set!  It's so fun!
These are my must-have shop picks for this month:
1. Adhesive Backed Cork Stack - perfect for die cutting your own embellishments!
2. Wire snips - just the tool to use when separating the different images in the metal die set
3. More White Cardstock - 10 sheets of 8-1/2 x 11" cardstock.  It's smooth & perfect for stamping & sturdy enough for card bases as well.

I also really love these Scripture Cards by Lindsay Letters.  I love the words themselves & the chalkboard effect is really fun.  The cards are 4x3", so they're perfect for Project Life or as a card focal point.

Here are some of the projects I made using the new kits.  This one uses just the Copper Mountain Card Kit:
These little felties are so easy to make!  I used the new metal dies from the kit, some felt & a little googly eye from my craft stash.  I'll post a short tutorial for you soon!

This next project is a gift & card all in one!  I used the Spaulding Bowl card kit add-on for this one:

The strip of patterned paper temporarily holds the bookmark in place, but it can slide out easily from the card front.

I have a vintage dictionary that I use to make backgrounds & other embellishments.  I just selected a page that coordinated with my theme & watercolored it using Mister Huey's mist.

This next card uses just the main card kit too.  I love the masculine papers found in this month's kit.
To make the fishing line, I just snipped one of the rain drops stamps to separate it from the group & stamped it repeatedly in a vertical line.  I used it again horizontally to create a border.  I love how the raindrops look like hand stitching.

The stamps are really awesome this month too.  I love that there's a solid & an outline image for the fish.  It makes adding color so easy!

This next card uses one of the new printable images from the digi shop.  I just opened it in my photo editing software & repeated the image to create a background.

Here's the digital printable in it's entirety:
I used the whale metal die once again to cut through several layers on my card front.  I love how strong these dies are!  The sentiment is part of the Spaulding Bowl kit.

I'll be back at midnight with a video I shot while unpacking my kit.  I think it's fun to see things up close & I hope you enjoy it!
